Labour Party Activity

Andy Newman, Labour PartyI am a Labour Party activist in South Swindon CLP. I am chair of the Swindon Local Campaign Forum, and a member of the Labour Party’s South West Regional Board. I am also a member of the Executive Committee of South Swindon CLP. I am the convener of the Swindon Trade Union Liaison Organisation (the trade unions affiliated to Labour), and I represent GMB on the South West regional TULO.

In 2010 I strongly backed Anne Snelgrove in her campaign to defend her seat as South Swindon MP, and I was the first signature on her nomination form

In 2012 I stood for a seat on Swindon Borough Council for Eastcott ward, which was a hard fought contest against the Liberal Democrats. I received 961 votes, which was 33.8%, but sadly it was not quite enough to win. I am proud to be part of the Eastcott Labour team, who have doubled the Labour vote over 5 years, and now pose a real challenge to the Lib Dems in what they previously regarded as a safe seat.
